Stem cell injections are a popular treatment for various conditions, but are they covered by Medicare? The answer is maybe. Medicare will cover stem cell injections if they are considered medically necessary and if the patient receiving the treatment meets certain criteria.
However, here is some important information from Dr. Centeno that you should be aware of about Medicare covering stem cell expenses.
Dr. Centeno discusses the recent Medicare and private health plan decision to claw back all payments for amniotic, placental, or umbilical cord “stem cell” injections. So if you had one of these procedures covered by Medicare or your insurance, you may owe $4-20,000 to the clinic that performed the procedure.
